The Year's Goals
Last year was pretty awesome as far as reaching goals, most notably are my first sea run brown, my first walleye on a fly, and my a big channel cat on the fly. Also notable but expected was a 20 inch wild brown on a big streamer. I'm, very proud of those successes, but...
I did not get all of my goals completed. This year the big one is striped bass. I'm looking for a good sized one on a fly, frankly I find the fact that I have not yet caught a striper of even schoolie size on a fly to be a very large hole in my reputation. I mean I live in CT, one of the best places in the world for striped bass. But I also failed to land a koi, and in a dramatic and painful way (A Koi Lost ). Those are two of my goals, a nice striper and a koi. Also in the 2016 goal list: Another sea run, northern pike, a 26+ brown, and a PB Brooky preferably in CT
